Liberation Theology and LDS Theology #2

"The universal church, always prompt to condemn Marxism, has been more tolerant of the evils of capitalism, even in its most damaging imperiest forms. . . . The church that lives in the wealthy countries does not denounce with sufficient vigor the exploitive conduct of these countries toward the rest of the world. It preaches mercy rather than justice, thus leaving aside one of the central themes of historical prophecy."
-Ignacio Ellacuria, "Utopia and Prophecy in Latin America."

Make whatever connection you will to the LDS Church and/or its members.
